just bought a blazer/sportscoat at Sportscraft for $49 reduced from $399.... it has a bit of the Kevin Mcclouds about it, but then so do I (getting old, going bald, into architecture smile.gif )

Anyone make it to the Harrolds sale in Melbourne today? 50% off all collections, apparently. Still overpriced for sure but at least not eye wateringly so.

I love the guy and will not listen to any criticism!

Actually, I thought his three piece getup in his ‘Grand Tours’ series was great!

I might do the same, although I should probably take a break from purchasing anything for the time being.

You're not alone, mate.

Having the client site so nearby Charles Nahkle's shop is hurting my wallet.

I did, picked up a grey Kitsune tee and a great off white Brioni dress shirt 70% off. They have some aged product at 70% off amongst the rest 50%.

Tom Ford ties and pocket squares aren't bad at that price too. Plenty of product for people who are size EU 50+

+1 though I seriously hope, for his crew's sake, that he had a stash of those suits that he rotated to maintain continuity, rather than just the one. That whole programme was fantastic.

Funnily enough that was the first thing I'd watched him in since becoming aware of decent dressing, and also thought his suit was ok in that. Then I started occasionally watching Grand Designs again and oh my god, the humanity! The other week, in the very structured dark blue pinstripe orphaned suit coat (it would appear) with awful fitting jeans and the grungiest pair of trainers you could imagine. What was he thinking...

What would you miss if you were no longer famous?
KM: I think I’d miss the money. I’m terrified of being poor, I always have been. It’s growing up as a Methodist. I’ll spend that bit of extra money to get a better seat on a train sometimes, because it’s quieter and calmer, but I refuse to spend money on clothes.

MUCH better...

Cheers. I could be sorely tempted by a nice Caruso suit in a EU 50. Must not buy, must not buy ...

@Teggeh: Seeing as their service as a tailor is quite one on one, I'd buy something from them to feel less guilty, even if its something small.
